Tour van Nederlands platteland en cultuur vanuit Amsterdam, inclusief Zaanse Schans, Edam en Volendam
Vanaf daar gaat de tour verder naar Edam, beter bekend als de parel van de Zuiderzee. Langs de eeuwenoude straten en rustige grachten in Edam staan prachtige 17e-eeuwse gebouwen, waaronder de scheve Carillontoren, de Grote Kerk en het stadhuis. De beroemdste attractie in Edam is zonder enige twijfel de openbare Kaaswaag, waar nog steeds elke woensdag in de zomer de beroemde Edammer kaas wordt verkocht. Na een wandeling door dit historische stadje krijgt u de gelegenheid om te zien hoe de wereldberoemde Edammer kaas wordt gemaakt en, uiteraard, om deze te proeven in een nabijgelegen kaasboerderij.
Tot slot stopt u in het mooie kustdorp Volendam. Dit typische vissersdorpje met zijn levendige haven is al sinds 1875 een belangrijke toeristische attractie. Mensen van heinde en verre komen om de kleine gebouwen en huizen te bewonderen en te genieten van de lokale bewoners in hun traditionele klederdracht. Dit is een geweldige plek om souvenirs te kopen voor thuis of voor uzelf, en om foto's te laten maken in de traditionele Nederlandse klederdracht. Uw gids neemt u mee op een korte wandeling door de oudste delen van het dorp en u verkent het labyrint aan kronkels en bochten naar bezienswaardigheden als de Sint-Vincentiuskerk, de houten Stolphoevekerk en de Visafslag.

I would highly recommend taking this tour to give you a sense of what the Dutch countryside looks like. Each stop along the way truly allowed us to experience the traditional way of gouda cheese making (and tasting it), walking through the storybook-like town of Volendam, and the picturesque town of Edam. All along the way, our tour guide provided excellent commentary on the history of each stop so we were completely informed as to what we were seeing. The last stop was the outdoor museum at Zaanse Schans which featured a demonstration of clog making and provided plenty of opportunities to snap pictures of the windmills. I happened to come across the Bakery Museum which is so quaint inside while I sipped on hot chocolate and enjoyed a warm apple beignet. This tour was definitely a highlight of my trip to Amsterdam!
This was such a nice tour. I mostly enjoyed Edam. Volendam was nice. Zaanse Schans was too crowded, it was hard to enjoy the windmills. Especially being such a tourist location. The down side of the tour was that while your in Volendam and Edam especially, the tour doesnt give you enough time to really appreciate the beauty of these places. I was totally caught up with taking pictures, and enjoying the sceney that i would get left behind and miss all the explanation/background history of the area. I would recommend to the company to add nothef 30 mins to spending time in Edam. Other wise, great tour for all ages. Be sure to wear walking shoes also.
The commentary during the tour was quite interesting, particularly about the history of the areas, and seeing clog making. The downside was that everywhere we went was overwhelmed with tourist shops or extra charge, such as to see windmills..
It was a very nice experience, the guide was very helpful, the driver was very careful and gentle and the places we have visited were definitely worth -to- see!
Two of us did this tour in May 2019 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cheese farm was great with the cheese tastings, watching the clogs being made - fascinating, would have liked a little more time in Volendam as it is so pretty. The tour guide was excellent and the information about the dykes and the windmills was fantastic. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who has not been to Holland.
The John the driver and Harold the tour guild were very good, I wish there was more time at fisherman villiage maybe another 15-30 minute but rest of tour stops were just right This tour was like walking through postcard. WONDERFUL TOUR.
Tour guide was Edgar. He was fun and friendly. Took really good care of us throughout the trip. It was great that he spoke many languages although it could be confusing at times when he switched from one to the other. I thought that this was an English only tour. I cant help wondering whether he could have provided more information on the places we went to if he wasnt translating in 3 different languages all the time. Great tour and guide and driver all the same.
Really good! I'd only change a few small things.
Must-do tour when in Amsterdam! A small break from the buzz of the city.
This was an excellent day trip away from Amsterdam. We had a chance to see Dutch life and the beautiful countryside. Our guide was super informative, kid, and very accommodating. We had our children elementary aged who loved this excursion. Many beautiful sights and interesting aspects of Dutch culture to be learned. The stop in Edam was amazing and the cheese delicious. The Voldendam stop was nice, but really touristy. We wished we could have had more time in the little fishing village. Get a fresh fried cod fish sandwich and try the mini pancakes.
